Jon Garland (1-4, 4.75) vs. Javier Vasquez (3-4, 6.41).
Don't overlook these Fish. The Marlins, second place in the NL East by a game, came into the NL West-leading Giants' house on Tuesday and not only swept their sorry San Francisco asses (including an epic extra-inning Wednesday game that saw the Marlins give up four runs in the bottom of the ninth, but then come back to win it in the 12th), but also squarely and cleanly knocked Giant catcher Oyster Pubes onto the DL--possibly for the whole season--with an violent leg-breaking, ankle ligament-tearing collision that ended up scoring that 12th inning go-ahead run.
It's a deep and unfortunate blow for the Giants to lose Pubes this early on, and our thoughts go out to him for a complete recovery. In the meantime, though, we've got to worry about the ravenous, deadly Fish in town this weekend, starting with tonight's game. Let's hope our day off Thursday gave us time to prepare for a big haul. Or at least apply some proper sunscreen.
I know, you expected Marlins Mermaids references in this GT. Keep it in the pants. We've still got two more games to go in this series.
